Population Explorerâ„¢ for Humanitarian Response

Posted by Katie Toren on May 15, 2018

Disasters affecting human populations are occurring with increased frequency. However, the best estimates of how many people are impacted by a major disaster are often based on cursory or poorly-supported guesses. Why? Because responders do not have access to population-specific data; and if they they do, it is usually out of date or at resolution that lacks sufficient detail for meaningful decision making. Best guesses and expert opinions often inform multi-million dollar relief responses, rather than relevant, location-sensitive data. The need for better demographic information to respond to natural and human-caused disasters is clear.

Many of our customers are using Population Explorer everyday across the humanitarian sector. From disaster scenario analysis to aid distribution in the wake of natural disaster and more, Population Explorer assists our users in Humanitarian Response in a variety of ways.
